Omar is an excellent guide! Knowledgable, engaged both in nature and in his community and he is also very funny and entertaining. We can do nothing else than strongly recommend him and his guided walks!

My family and I (13, 19, 21 yrs old) spent Christmas morning hiking the jungle with Omar. He is a native of Manzanillo and knows the area inside and out. He has a heightened sense of the wildlife from growing up there, and pointed out tiny snakes, spiders and ants that we never would have seen. He could identify all... More

My family and I were staying in Manzanillo for a weeks time and hired both Omar and his brother Andy for kayaking tours, jungle hikes, and Indigenous village/chocolate and medicinal plant tours. Our experiences could not have been planned or gone any better! Both Omar and Andy are extremely knowledgable of the area, flora, and fauna of the region. The... More

My wife and I went on a belated honeymoon to Costa Rica's Caribbean coast in April 2014. We picked CR because it had a lot to offer--including hikes through exotic jungles. Our local hotel set us up with Omar for a half day hike through the jungles adjacent to the beach in Manzanillo. Omar was delightful. He has a native... More

I went on 2 tours with Omar. The jungle tour is an easy walk through the wildlife preserve - stopping many times along the way. Omar was born and raised in the Manzanillo area and is intimately familiar with the history, culture and the wildlife in the area. He knows quite a bit about the physiology of the plants and...

My wife and I went on a jungle hike this morning and loved it. Omar sees the jungle in a way no outsider ever could. He notices things the average person would never see and explains things thoroughly and thoughtfully. My wife and I had been in Puerto Viejo for about a week before taking the tour. All my wife...

Barbara and I, while staying in Manzanillo, Limon for a couple weeks, were lucky to be introduced to Omar by our casita mgr., Amanda. Omar was unique in the fact that he not only makes sure you see all types of wildlife (bullet ants, howler monkeys, toucans, eyelash vipers,et al) while touring the jungle; BUT, if you allow yourself the...

We stayed in Punta Uva for 5 days and booked a jungle tour with Omar in Manzanillo after doing some research online. Omar met us on time ready to teach and explore. Over the next 4 plus hours, we hiked with Omar in the nearby refuge learning about the plants and wildlife. We saw monkeys, sloths, snakes, spiders, various ants,... More
